Theatre is such a beautiful art form that is very underrated. As a girl who loves theatre, I wanted to share a couple of my favorite musicals. This is a list of the most entertaining and fun musicals that both musical lovers and novice theatre goers can both enjoy!

Newsies

This is my all time favorite musical. Newsies is such an upbeat, fun show that filled with catchy music and incredible dancing. This musical is based off the Disney movie of "Newsies," which followed the Newsboys Strike of 1899 in NYC. The plot is interesting and easy to follow, and all of the cute newsboys tap dancing, flipping, and singing doesn’t hurt either.

Wicked

A classic musical, Wicked is a show that has beautiful music, a compelling storyline, and memorable characters. I just saw Wicked for the first time in November, and it was one of the most amazing shows I’ve seen, especially the song “Defying Gravity.” Even those who may not enjoy theatre typically, would probably like this show due to the quirky characters and connection to "The Wizard of Oz."

Something Rotten

Another show that I consider one of my all time favorites is Something Rotten. This musical is set in the Renaissance period, and is full of hilarious antics, fun characters, drama, and an undeniably catchy soundtrack. Especially if you are a fan of Shakespeare and literature, this musical will easily become one of your favorites.

Book of Mormon

Although this musical is very offensive to a wide array of people, it is one of the funniest shows I’ve ever seen. I was laughing non-stop because of songs like “Turn It Off” and “Hasa Diga Eebowai” along with other spoken lines that would disgust some audiences. If you attend this show, be prepared to encounter some sac-religious content, but also be prepared to laugh your butt off!

Mary Poppins

A classic movie turned into an energetic musical, Mary Poppins is such a fun show. It is so magical to watch Mary Poppins fly across the stage or see Burt and the other chimney sweeps up on the rooftops dancing and jumping around. This is the perfect musical for a family to attend or a group of friends who want a little magic!

These are just 5 of my favorite musicals that almost everyone is guaranteed to love. The music, dancing, and sets in these shows are incredible and they highlight why theatre is such an amazing form of art.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
